Re: An Historic Story - New book.

Congratulations on getting this book into publication, and capturing the last 90years of the club’s history. I know the hard work, research and dedication in getting this far, and I know Ian has worked tirelessly over many years keeping club records and saving the club’s history. I will always remember when amongst his numerous volunteering duties for the club when he worked in the Sandy Lane tea bar, where he made available a collection of newspaper photo pictures which  were pinned on the shutter doors. DeePees match day programme experiences will no doubt have helped getting Ian’s booked into production.

90 years will help capture the club’s chequered history, from the highs, the lows, and the very lows, and for any Tooting supporter this is must have read. For the new generation of supporters this will be a chance to see  how the club progressed over the years, and provide an In depth experience of a history that is sadly being lost.

Well done to Ian and DeePee for your great efforts, and I hope your venture is well rewarded.

Re: An Historic Story - New book.

Many thanks Mike on behalf of both Ian and myself.

I know Ian worked tirelessly to got this updated and back together again and I know he's chuffed with the electronic version that he's seen so far.

I'm hoping he'll be even more chuffed when he sees the actual hard copy and it'll be a huge lift for him as he's been feeling really poorly of late.

We currently have around 15 orders so far and we only went 'live' with this two days ago.

Cheers all. Keep the orders flooding in.

Re: An Historic Story - New book.

Hi DeePee,
Well done on getting out the publicity out on Ian’s book and the brief notes on his hard work, dedication and association with the Football Club on the Isthmian league website. The coverage and images shown on the book look great, let’s hope you have to go into a reprint 😊. Hopefully this wonderful book will give a great insight into the Football Team for all those new supporters.
Sent you a PM.
